#10335 closed Bug report (worksforme)

filezilla site manager FTP Account password changed to base64 format after updating to latest version

Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Windows 7


After the latest updation of FileZilla client (3.10.2), all of my FTP Account Password information changed from normal open password mode to secure base64 password format and also connection mode changed to use explicit FTP over TLS if available. Due to this I am unable to connect the FTP Servers for file transfer processes.

After I re-enter all of the information it seems to be saving now, but we now need to track down all of the information that is missing.

Currently I don't have backup of the Site Manager Information before updation to latest version.

Storing of passwords is now always done in base64 format. This is intentional and desired. Your old passwords are being converted once using a new version.

Explicit FTP over TLS is only used if your server says it supports it. If your server is lying about FTP over TLS support, contact your server administrator or server hosting provider for assistance so that the server can brought in line.
